Electric cars - the future of mobility

Pure electric cars, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid technology will change the way you move.

A time for change

In 2017 we made a commitment to electrify every car in our range in preparation for an era beyond the internal combustion engine. That era begins now. Be a part of this change. We’ve been working with electric propulsion since the 1970s and we have learned a lot along the way, from deploying a test fleet of C30 Battery Electric Vehicles in 2010, to the launch one of the world’s first plug-in hybrid diesel cars in 2012.


We are applying the latest battery and propulsion technology across our range to make the switch to electric cars easier and more enjoyable.

Mild Hybrid

Mild Hybrids deliver a seamless and more efficient driving experience.

Plug-in Hybrid

Our Twin Engine powertrains deliver effortless performance and zero-emissions capability.

Pure Electric

The future is silent, zero-emission driving.

Technology that empowers people

We pride ourselves on designing cars that make life easier and more enjoyable. A key to this is understanding how to make technology work for you. This is the basic principle we apply to everything we do.

Battery technology

Battery technology is advancing rapidly. It means that electric cars are now a viable and smart alternative to the internal combustion engine. We use Lithium-ion battery technology to power our Twin Engine cars. These batteries are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle.

Pure mode

When you drive your Twin Engine or Pure Electric Volvo in Pure mode you will immediately notice something different: it is remarkably quieter than a car powered by a combustion engine. You’ll also notice increased take-off performance thanks to the instantaneous delivery of pure power to the wheels.
